These are the five next would-be legends in women's tennis who will provide the biggest threat to Ash Barty over the Australian number one's career.
Bianca Andreescu (Canada)
Canadian Bianca Andreescu became the first teenager since Maria Sharapova to win the US Women’s singles title in 2019.
2019 was a breakthrough season for the Canadian because she won the US Open final over Serena Williams. She reached the second round of the Australian Open and French Open in 2019.
Andreescu plays like a top player with her mental toughness and her playing style is versatile. Her shot selection from the back of the court is superior because she puts different types of spin on the ball to place the point on her terms.
She can anticipate shots well and therefore returns shots back powerfully. Opposition players find her shot placements to be unpredictable making her a tough player. In years to come, she will improve, so expect the Canadian to be up there with her rising talent.
